Hey Guys,

It's a 2001 Katana 750 with Yoshimura RS-3 exhaust, -1 front sprocket and stage 1 jet kit. It has a real neat paint job on it that looks like a cherry red in bright sunlight, like a deep purpleish color in the shade and black at night. That exhaust really screams..I love it

I've enjoyed the hell out of it so far. I rode it for about 3 hours on sunday with a friend of mine that went with me to pick it up. We just kind of took some back roads to different places that were cool to see. Had a blast.

I had it loaded in the back of my truck, but then got nervous about unloading it(didn't want to drop it), so I took it to a shop that a friend of mine knows the owner of and the guy unloaded it for me. I then had to ride it on the interstate to get it to the house, so that was a first but not bad.

I won't be able to ride it today cause i have to work all day and it will be dark and cold when I get off, but my 4 day weekend starts tomorrow, so I'll definately be putting some miles on it over the weekend. I have a lot of nice curvy country roads out my way that I need to cruise.

Here's some pictures...

Moto Club Here's a picture my friend took. Mine is in the back

When I was first sitting on it and trying deciding wether or not to buy it

I had some more, but I can't find them right now

Thanks guys

I won't be able to ride consistantly because my mom came in from Orlando last night and I can't just abandon her, but I will most definately put at least 200 or so on it this weekend. My girlfriend teaches riding lessons to this wealthy family about 40 minutes from here, and the drive out there consists of the most beautiful windy country roads. I've already told the women that they're going to be riding together in the car while I lead on the bike.

I almost forgot how nice it is to get on the road with a bike. I'm really loving it so far. Now I just need to get my friend that has a GS500F to go riding with me, lol.

Enjoy and CONGRATS on the new scoot!

I'm off to put some miles on my Ducati now that the mountain has warmed up a bit. It's 1:00 in the afternoon and it should be good until about 5 for riding.

Yeah..I love living where it doesn't snow I think maybe like a week of snow a year would be kind of fun, but that's all I would want.

It's in the mid 60s here today. I actually wore a short sleeve shirt and took the liner out of my riding jacket and opened up the bicep vents when I went on my ride today Whereas on my previous rides on the bike, I had a long sleeve shirt on, with a sweatshirt over that, with my jacket with liner installed over that..Beautiful day today. I'm gonna go riding here again in just a little bit
